Biomedical lab scientists call off strike

The Ghana Association of Biomedical Laboratory Scientists (GABMLS), has called off their strike effective Tuesday August 30.

The group was on strike demanding the immediate implementation of a national health laboratory policy by government before they return to work.

But the association stated that “upon consultation with labour expects and other clients, the executives of the association has called off their strike which started on 22nd August, 2016.

The association has thus asked all members to resume work with immediate effect.

The decision to call off the strike also comes after the National Labour Commission (NLC) filed a suit at the Labour Division of the High Court against the strike action by the biomedical laboratory scientists.

The NLC prayed the court to compel them to go back to post.

The Commission had earlier ordered the Ghana Association of Biomedical Laboratory Scientists (GABMLS), not to embark on the strike because they were essential service providers.

Public Relations Officer of the Biomedical Laboratory Scientists, Dennis Adu Gyasi told Citi FM that after several correspondence with government they decided to call off the strike.

“This has been amidst several counsel and correspondence that we have had with authorities at the helm of government and we think that issues that have been discussed so far have been assuring and is better we get back to the labour commission.”
